It’s unfortunately out of print completely and I’ve never seen a copy online. My partner found a copy of it in the Worldcat library database and had it sent to her local library, where she photocopied it for us, but I don’t think you can do that from overseas.
It’s been a plan of mine to scan the book and make it available for everyone to download, because it’s a pretty amazing resource for AR’s inner life (which Boardwalk absolutely is not!!!) and Carolyn’s perspective on things as someone who both cared for him and criticized how he lived his life (and had flaws of her own too, which people like to forget).

He never writes it. He never sends it.
He wouldn’t give Rothstein the satisfaction.
